i see you like the some of the cartoons.

Henry why do you always post thumbnails?

Why not simply plug the original cartoon into the post so it displays like the one above?

The benefit is that one avoids clicking on a thumbnail and being taken out of the site and having to use the back function to return.

And yes I like your cartoons.

I disagree with this one though. The iPad is unique among the above items in that two or more people can interact with an iPad and each other at the same time while sitting together on a sofa or at a table.

I don't think you can just pin it on stupidity, jealousy, etc (though I'm sure those are a big part of it). It's just human nature.

It's the same for anything where there are fans involved.

Lots of mountain bikers hate road bikers for no good reason. In Australia, owners of GM cars hate owners of Fords (and vice versa).

Just look at football fans in the UK. Or political party followers in the US. Or religion.

Our behaviour is steered much more by emotional rather than rational decision making.

I know a few people that just have nothing but negativity for the iPad and have never used it. I just say use it and you'll understand. They read things written by people that haven't used it and think it's crap, then when they are told how great it is they say you're a fanboy...they obviously have their mind made up.

In 3 years when 75% of net books are replaced with iPads (ahem iPhone) maybe they will get it.
They might get it but they won't act on it. They'll rather take to the grave than lose face...

The common theme is related Steve Jobs to Moses. That could be a positive or negative in that Moses did bring his people out of slavery. However, the idea that a tablet is going to replace books is foolish. It may replace some books that need replacing, like textbooks. Good literature is going to still be sought after for more than just the story. The most likely to suffer would be the paperbacks. They have a short life span as is. I know I have started replacing a few of my paperbacks with hardbacks because the paperbacks are deteriorating.

Steve Jobs is a brilliant technology prophet. That does not make him a religeous figure except to a deluded few. Technology has a tendency to make us nostalgic for the simple past. Except the past was never as idealic as we remember.

Why Steve Jobs is Playing Tough With the iPhone

Attached to this message is a zip compressed PDF from CBS News about the 'Adobe - Apple issue'.

It makes a good read as to why the hatred from Adobe fans is foolishness. As you will see thinking like a fool will cost most their job according to CBS.

It is also a good test of your ability of placing a PDF on your iPad and reading it. Try iPad application GoodReader to make it happen...$0.99 in app store.

bottom line quote


"Does anyone mind that Jobs won’t sacrifice the truly strategic differentiation of the iPhone platform on the altar of cross-platform compatibility? Customers and critics don’t. They love the end-result. Nor do developers. There are 185,000 apps in Apple’s App Store, 3,500 already for the iPad. Philanthropists at Kleiner Perkins, the noted Valley VC firm, are doubling (to $200M) the size of their iFund, a fund dedicated to iPhone and now iPad investments.

Let’s perform a thought experiment. By the end of 2010, there will be more than 100 million iPhone OS devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad). You’re the webmeister at an important content site. The boss comes in and asks you why you’re not supporting the iPhone OS devices. ‘Our stuff is all Flash-based, chief, those guys don’t run Flash’. You’re about to become the ex-webmeister. The boss, a really patient sort, asks you to “think different” about all these “non-compliant” customers, each of whom has an iTunes account backed by a credit card, and has developed the habit (encouraged by Apple) of paying for content. So, one more time, with feeling: What’s your answer?""

Apple is making money faster than they can spend it. Does anyone think that the stockholders care about critics complaints over flash. Or feeling sorry about Adobe? Apple does ten times the business of Adobe. They have the products everyone desire. Design a great app, you will not sell its potential unless you follow Apple's guidelines. Its a no brainer.
